You worst recent draft endorsement ...

Recommended Posts

 

I know this is done every year ... But it's fun all the same to see the self declared experts fail .... What is your most recent failed draft endorsement ? By recent I mean last five years. No Blair Thomas selections etc ...

 

I'll start by saying I was a huge fan of drafting the next Great White Hope .... Mr Chad Hansen.

 

Hey ... Nobody is perfect...

Marcus Mariota.

And I was OK with Quinnen Williams.   Didn't have a strong preference towards him, Allen, or Oliver.  

QW's college tape was so dominant... didn't foresee him being so invisible.

Yeah I bought into the Josh Rosen hype.   After watching his comeback against Texas A&M (or LSU, can't remember) as a Senior I was sold.

I gotta own up to both of those, but I was thinking Jets draftees when I answered teh question.  And I also wanted no part of Lamar Jackson.

I thought Vince Young and Matt Leinhart would be pro bowlers for years to come!

Polite.  Thought he was going to be the steal of the draft.  😁

I too mistakenly thought Rosen was the real deal.  I’m almost embarrassed to say that I thought Mahommes was just another system product that wouldn’t make it in the nfl.

Jets wise, I would have to go Calvin Pryor.  Jamal Adams is everything I thought Calvin was going to be.

NFL in general, and its still a little way's back, but I would probably say either Colt McCoy-I thought he was going to be an absolute Stud at the NFL level or more recently Kevin White-jut never could escape the injury bug.

Jets: Leo - while redundant, I was doing backflips over the pick. I believed the hype. 

NFL:  Teez Tabor - he was dominant at Florida and I thought despite a lack of speed, he'd still be able to lock down WR's with technique, physicality and play recognition ala Richard Sherman.  I was wrong.

Otherwise, my record speak for itself and is pretty much spotless.  You'd have to go back to Coples for my last ugly swing an miss.

Put me down for Calvin Pryor. I thought with his hair he looked so much like a predator alien he would have to be good. 

Me too.

I hate the Quinnen Williams pick, literally almost dropped to my knees and cursed the football gods and Maccagnan, but on the next day i was ecstatic we finally drafted the pass rushing threat i hoped Polite would turn into.

Little did i know at the time Polite was a worse pick than Quinnen.

I’ve only ever been wrong on one eval and that was Matt Leinart. Granted, he flopped because of work ethic, but it’s still the *lone* black mark on my record.

I'm guilty of both and you can include Mason Rudolph and the midget quarterback from the Browns

Jets.....Ardarius Stewart. Thought he was our new Cotchery.

NFL....Mike Williams. Thought this guy would be a top 3 WR in the entire league for the next 10 years.

Thought Rosen was going to be great. Liked Rosen/ Josh Allen / Darnold / Jackson and Mayfield in that order. Thought Vernon Gholston  was going to be a beast 
And for all you old timers I also thought Onzy Elam was going to be great as well. Guess I should stay away from picking edge pass rushers

Stephen Hill.  Loved the pick.  Speed, size, hands (or so I thought).  Killed it at the combine.  Even loved his first game where he caught 2 TDs against Buffalo.  But that was his peak.  All down Hill after that.

Me too.  This guy, as much as anybody, really drove home that you should go with college performance over measurables every time.

Wanna bet.😉 

I can't think of much in the way of recent "wow, got that wildly wrong" when it comes to the Jets horrible drafting. 

Being a dedicated doubter and a cynic pays off as a Jets Fan, sadly. ☹️

I thought Rosen.

I was #1 on Baker, then Rosen.   I felt a guy who turned the ball over a lot in college would keep doing it, and a guy who wasn't accurate (Allen) would stay inacurrate.

I think most 1st rounders flop due to work ethic, or just a bad situation.

To be a 1st rounder, you have to have a level of athleticism, after that it is who works after they start getting paid.
